Celeb Style file: Kai Morae

This is a plus size diva that we don’t hear too much about although her style is amazing. Lisa Raye’s daughter Kai Morae, who also models for Apple Bottoms is definitely proving that she has what is takes to take the modeling world by storm!  In addition, her personal style is the bomb!

Here’s a few of her looks that I love:

Peak of the Summer Must Haves!

Hey guys, last week I did a guest post on my good friend Stiletto Siren’s blog “Lips Hips and Fatshion Tips” and you know I couldn’t leave our readers out of the loop, so here is my guest post on FP3! Make sure you check out my girl Stiletto’s website here, she always does the most fabulous OOTD’s!

Hey Lips Hips and Fatshion Tips readers, it’s Micaela here from Fashion Plus 3 subbing in for the beautiful and talented Stiletto Siren as she jet sets on vacay with her beautiful family during this blazing summer!  Speaking of the summer, we have officially hit the peak of it and after many days of sweating uncontrollably (it’s been hotttt in Chicago), I finally know what  keeps me cool, calm and fabulous! So here are my tried and true must haves for the peak of the summer!

1. A Maxi Dress

What’s the one clothing item that can keep you cool, comfy and fabulous all day, no matter what? A Maxi dress of course! During the day I throw on sandals or wedges and throw my hair in a ponytail and I’m instantly day time chic.  Then, if I want to be glam for night time soiree’s  all I have to do is throw on statement earrings, fabulous heels and let my hair down and bam, I’m ready to party!  Maxi dresses are easy breezy and super stylish, my summer would seriously suck without one!

My fave

Forever 21 + Halter Maxi Dress

2. Waterproof Mascara/Liner

I love makeup, but let’s be real, makeup and summer don’t really mix.  So finding makeup that can combat the heat and still give me a fierce cat eye makes me super happy.  Water proof eyeliner and mascara is with me at all times!  The beauty of it is that I can wear it to work, then to the beach (get wet and everything), go out and come home and it’s still in the same place I put it that morning.  Yeah, it’s that good.  If you don’t know, now you do!

My Faves

Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black (Waterproof formula)

3.  Pambras Braliner

Sometimes undergarments are terribly uncomfortably.  Couple that with summer sweat and summer just turned into a bummer!  Beat that heat with a Pambras Braliner for cool, non sweaty boobs.  Seriously, I’m wearing one right now!

My fave

Pambra’s Bra Liner in White, Black and Nude (Link: http://www.fashionplus3.com/2011/07/10/no-more-sweaty-boobs-pambras-bra-liner-review-and-giveaway/)

4. A Sexy Swimsuit

No longer are the days when the only option for a sexy plus size  swim suit was a T-shirt!  We now have haute swimsuits that you can find anywhere, like at Torrid,  Monif. C or Swim Suits for All to name a few.  We have no excuse to where a t-shirt any more ladies!  Nothing looks better than wearing your curves confidently in a sexy swimsuit!  Now strut your stuff straight to the beach!

My fave:

"Monaco" Ruched Plus Size Swimsuit - Yellow

Monif C.-“Monaco” Ruched Plus Size Swimsuit – Yellow

5. Shorts!

Yes ladies, I said shorts.  Now, I know of lot of ladies aren’t comfortable showing their legs, but I find that I’m even more uncomfortable not showing them!  Wearing jeans can be so uncomfortable.  My legs like to breathe and they breathe best in shorts.  Cut at the right length, they can transform your wardrobe, making it fresh and summer appropriate.  You don’t want to be the girl standing out in 90 degree heat with jeans on! Give your legs some air girl, you’ll thank me later!

My fave:

Forever 21 +Linen-Blend Drawstring Shorts

Bonus Picks: A floppy hat and Sunglasses!

Sunburns are not cute honey!  I got one when I was younger from being in an outdoor pool all day without a stitch of SPF on.  My Mom didn’t think that I needed it because I’m African American, but ladies, no matter your heritage wear sunscreen!  It is good for your skin!  And also wear a floppy hat and sunglasses.  It’s better to be protected than not because no one is excluded from skin cancer, or sun burns.  Be proactive in your skin care and you’ll have great skin for many summers to come!

My fav:

Floppy hat and Sunglasses-Gifted from my Mom for b-day (She gets it now yall)

This hat was also under a dollar at a thrift store!

I hope my list of must haves was helpful!  If your still sweltering through the summer hopefully my list can help you through the rest of the hot days that I am sure will come!



So what peak of the summer must haves do you use to keep cool?

Daily Find: Transition to Fall

Hey guys, so it’s still pretty darn hot outside but in every magazine fall is taking over!  You can’t turn one page without seeing fall coats, jackets, snakeskin this, and leopard print that!  Will they just let us enjoy the last of summer before we have to bundle up?  No, well I guess I could compromise and plan early  for Fall.   So in my effort to ignore the temperature outside, here is a couple of jackets that can bridge the gap between fall and summer and prepare us in advance for the upcoming season!

Should magazines be pushing fall clothes even though it’s still hot?

Beauty Q’s and A’s: At Home Protein Treatment

Jasmine here, and I’ve recently tried to think of ways to save money as far as my hair goes. I’ve tested many home remedies for my hair and one that I fell in love with was the egg protein treatment. With ingredients that are most likely in your home, you can whip up a cheap alternative to pricey salon protein treatments. After using this concoction, I was left with noticeably softer, shinier hair. Now this procedure may not rock everyone’s boat (some people’s hair doesn’t like protein) but it worked for me. Try it out and give me your feed back.




  • 1-2 eggs (depending on how much hair you have)
  • 1-2 tbs of oil (olive oil, jojoba oil, cocoanut oil, almond oil, just to name a few)
  • moisturizing shampoo and conditioner ( I usually just co-wash my hair meaning I wash with conditioner only)
  • small bowl
  • fork
  • plastic cap

First mix the egg the egg and the oil in a small bowl using the fork. Make sure it’s well combined. Then carefully put mixture in your hair (eggs can be messy). After your hair is fully saturated, put on the plastic cap and do something constructive for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes shampoo and condition hair using moisturizing products because you need a balance of protein and moisture for strong healthy hair. Style as desired.

Yay or Nay: Kelly Rowland Album Release Party

So, Kelly Rowland just released her new album “Here I Am” and of course Michelle and Beyonce’ attended the release party.  However, Kelly was still the star of the party with her daring choice of wardrobe.  Though Kelly wasn’t the only one stylin’ and profilin’ at the release, her black, edgy cutout dress was definitely an attention grabber!  Adding the silver pumps and piercing blue eyeliner on her bottom eyelid as a pop of color was the perfect finishing touch for a perfect ensemble.  Tika Sumpter also worked the carpet with her bright pink get up.

But with fashion do’s there must be fashion don’ts.  Now, I don’t hate Michelle’s dress, but I think her choice of dress was pretty much plane jane-ish.  It seems she tried to glam up the look with the “red bottom” Louboutin pumps, but they just weren’t enough. Not for me at least. What do you guys say?



Haven’t heard the album yet?

Celeb Style File: Kelly Osbourne

Hi everyone! It’s Dannika and I’m highlighting Kelly Osbourne’s chic, I’m cooler than you style.  Now, I have to admit  Kelly was rocking an edgier style that I wasn’t quite fond of when she was younger.  But now, Ms. Kelly O has polished up her look without losing her cool edgy-ness, which has certainly changed my mind!   Her style and fashion sense has matured, and it can be seen splashed all over the Fashion Police on E! So, here are my absolute fave outfits from Kelly Osbourne showing off her style.  Keep rockin’ that thang Kelly
